- Has significant anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiviral effects.
- May help to maintain muscle mass in individuals following low-calorie diets.
- Protects the skin from photo-ageing and is a potent inhibitor of elastase.
Ursolic Acid supplement in vegetarian capsules offers significant benefits for muscle mass and overall health, as well as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiviral effects.
The leaves of the Japanese loquat tree (eriobotrya japonica) contain precious substances called oleanolic acid, amygdalin and, in particular, ursolic acid, a pentacyclic triterpene, small amounts of which are also found in rosemary, apple peel, holy basil (tulsi) and sage. Ursolic acid and its isomer, oleanic acid, are chemically almost identical, their structure differing only in the position of a methyl group (CH3).
Both offer potentially important health benefits, such as preventing the development of cancer, inhibiting existing tumour cells, protecting against the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and exerting anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiviral effects.
Ursolic acid has traditionally been used for the skin as it repairs damaged tissues in the cutaneous barrier and scalp. It also protects the skin from photo-ageing and is a potent inhibitor of elastase, an enzyme present in the skin which attacks structural proteins. With its multiple properties, ursolic acid is therefore an important addition to the range of phytoceutical resources available for anti-ageing in general.
Ursolic acid is a powerful and natural anti-inflammatory which inhibits human leukocyte elastase (HLE) as well as 5-lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase-2 activity and prostaglandin synthesis. It also has antioxidant and anti-MMP-9 (matrix metalloproteinase-9) effects. In addition, it offers important cancer protection, acting on a number of parameters:
For maximum effect, take 3 to 6 vegetarian capsules of ursolic acid daily, spread throughout the day. Those wishing to achieve a more sculpted figure may also be interested other supplements available to buy at Supersmart such as Crominex 3+ for improving muscle mass/fat mass ratio. For muscle weakness, molecules with anti-ageing effects, such as nicotinamide riboside, are also available as nutritional supplements.
Buy Ursolic acid to improve muscle health and increase anti-inflammatory protection.
